Biography

 

Danish. B. 1984.
Coming from a background of more straight photojournalism with publications in various newspapers around Europe, the personal work of Mathias Christensen has moved towards a more subjective and personal approach. Hence, still concerned about humanity and especially mankind's relation to nature and modern society, Mathias Christensen today devotes himself to longterm projects aiming for book publications and exhibitions.
